Road trip with optional connectivity woes

I believe that I’m just going to have to accept that I’ve become one of Those Ladies Whom Technology Always Bests.  Especially when its wanted most.  That’s rather lowering, since I used to be at least competent with tech.  Ah, well.

For this morning, at least, I can actually access my blog.  Let’s not waste the moment.

Here, then, on the morning of Tour Day Six, I can report that we’re having a splendid time meeting and talking with (and to) y’all! Look at all these happy faces!

Today we are blessed with a long morning, and a short shift to Holyoke.  We took advantage by sleeping in, and having a leisurely late-ish breakfast.  Right now, the music is on random (yay! for hotel clocks that accept an mp3 player’s franching wire), we’re redistributing the cargo balance between our bags — well, Steve is — and catching up on the news.

Massachusetts is still in Fall; the leaves had pretty much fallen at home.  Here in Worcester, we can look out our window and see trees in their full formal yellows, oranges, and reds.

Yesterday, we had a lovely visit with readers at Annie’s Bookstop, and a delightful dinner with owner Patty Cryan at Zorba’s Taverna.  We hope to see more of y’all at the Barnes and Noble at 7 Holyoke Street, tonight from 7-9.

Also, for Albany-area fans, we’ve just learned that there will be a group dinner preceeding our event at Flights of Fantasy on November 5 (that’s tomorrow!)  Check with Joe Berlant — or call the store — for details and to sign up.

In other news, Don Blyly at Uncle Hugo’s reports that all preordered signed Trade Secrets, saving a few outstanding credit card and postage problems, were shipped over the weekend.  If you need a signed copy, Don reports that he does have more in hand.  Here’s the order page.
